Works well, brews quickly and keeps our coffee hot. Lighter in weight than I expected, but is easy to clean and looks good on the counter. We like the glass top that shows when percolating.

Cuisinart 12-Cup Classic Stainless Steel Percolator
Stainless Steel Thermal Carafe
Customer reviews & ratings
Perc coffee is the best.
Meets my expectations
Got it last Christmas as a present. It makes hot and flavorful coffee. It brings back memories when my Grandmother brewed coffee in her percolator. I like the idea of brewing in a stainless steel pot rather than plastic. Enjoy that it is portable to bring to the table and easy to clean.
I use a regular coffee filter, so I can use any coffee grind and not get grounds in my coffee.
I use the filler pump tube (dampened), to make a hole in the filter as it is positioned in the basket.
It was one of my favorite Christmas presents.
We bought this to replace our Cuisinart thermal coffee maker that was dropped and broken. A blessing in disguise. This percolator is a low profile, classic design that is easy to use and percs a delicious cup of coffee! All stainless steel is great! We do use unbleached basket filters to catch any grounds. Just poke a hole in the middle as you set up.
Rocking it old school
Classical coffee maker If you want a wonderful cup of coffee, this is the coffee maker. Rocking it old school. You need a coarser ground coffee and your all set. Remember growing up with a percolator, my husband wanted this when we dmsaw it. So happy we purchase it.
We love it!
It takes me back to yesteryear. I remember working into the wee hours on term papers. The percolator would come on & soon I'd be stareing, watching it start perking. Such a memory as my father got ready for work ......
Smooth, hot coffee from this pot
The Cuisinart 12-cup electric percolator has brought back the smooth, rich coffee I remember from 40 years ago— only better. I've been using drip coffee makers forever and could never duplicate the taste of my mother's coffee — even by trying every brand of maker. The Cuisinart percolator is very simple to use AND clean. I put the stem and both parts of the basket in the dishwasher. The pot and top I wash by hand. For those who do not wish to have any sediment in the bottom of their cup, round disk filters are readily available. However, the holes in the percolator basket are microscopic, so not much sediment gets through. My coffee is smooth, strong, and hot— just the way I like it; and, the pot keeps the coffee hot as long as I leave it plugged in, without making the coffee taste burned or old. I usually use excellent brands of Colombian coffee. Additionally, there is something very comforting about that perking sound in the morning and the divine aroma of the coffee as it perks. It takes me back to my childhood. I don't know why I waited so long to purchase this coffee pot. I highly recommend it.
Love my Percolator! Needs one tiny improvement
This coffee maker is so much fun to use and makes a great cup of coffee. It seems very well built and clean up is a breeze. The only improvement that I would like to see is a small wire screen in the spout to filter out coffee grinds. There are currently small holes where the spout connects but they are too large and let out coffee grounds into you cup as you pour. If a small wire screen was installed here also, it would keep coffee grounds out of my cup of coffee when pouring, especially when getting the last few cups.
Great coffee, fast!
We love this percolator, great tasting coffee! No plastic parts like the auto drip machine. You can use a paper filter, but not needed if you follow the directions. I even love that the cord comes with a nice "clasper" to keep it tidy when storing it in the cupboard!
Percolator - the only way to make Great Coffee!
I forgot how good coffee can taste. I don't get why we all went to Keurig and Drip Coffee makers which basically makes tepid coffee flavored water. This percolator makes the best coffee I have had in years. Not only does it taste wonderful but the coffee is actually hot! I am so happy that I own this beautiful percolator. It is easy to use, has a very sleek look about it and enhances the kitchen counter. I highly recommend this product to anyone seeking to purchase a percolator.
I love this classic coffeepot. The brew tastes delicious. The stainless steele leaves no aftertaste like plastic. I suggest a screen filter for finer grounds. I use a paper filter but some escape due to the post.
